The Europort class can rightly be considered the royal class of scale cars. In terms of speed, it is by far the fastest on a 1/24 scale and on a 1/32 scale cars are not very much slower. The class requires really good driving skills from the driver. Spoken language speaks of "sports" as well as "small sports".
Engine and frame
The engine differs from other scale classes in that it is considerably smaller. As a result, the engine is also lighter and, contrary to imagination, the smaller machine is significantly faster than the larger so-called C-pitched X12 engines. In the Eurosport class, motor anchors use a thicker winding wire than, for example, in the Production class and other standard classes. The cost of engines is, of course, the highest in this category. The motors can have a maximum speed of up to 250,000 to 300,000 rpm, and these motors usually use samarium cobalt magnets, which can be up to 32 to 40 in one machine.
In this class, the frame is practically free and uses steel frames that are very light. The only restrictions in the rules are on the dimensions of the frame. For example, the price of frames is multiple compared to the Production category, and a frame alone can easily cost more than 100 euros. Furthermore, ball bearings are almost always used in the frame.
The ISRA 2016 and ISRA 2019 models are currently allowed as baskets. There is also a difference in other categories in the cut of the body, the height of the Eurosport body may be at the rear max 35mm on a 1/24 scale, while in other classes it is 38mm.
In a race, the functionality of the car between all the parts is extremely important. The car is considerably lighter than other scale cars and because of this the tires and transmissions also play an important role in the driveability of the car. The car is very fast to drive and its lightness brings its own challenges to driveability.
In this category, cars are usually always directly race cars and, as a rule, parts can only be ordered separately. A fully finished race-tuned car can easily cost up to 500-650 euros on its own, of which the engine can account for about 250-300 euros of the total price. Building a single race car can take many hours when done from start to finish.
